Like many others we stayed here as part of a wedding party. The location is lovely and this hotel could be wonderful but I doubt if the owners have spent a penny on it for many years. Our room was in the coach house adjoining the main building and was a fairly good size but it badly needed upgrading and... More

I was a wedding guest at the hotel and the first room that we were given was on par with a bed and breakfast room in Blackpool, a far cry from the expectation of a country hotel. We asked to move and were given 5 other rooms to choose from all of which were marginally better, so why were we... More

It wasn't my intention to complain at all as being invited to someones wedding in the venue of their choice, you feel slightly awkward. Myself and my partner were put on the top floor which was fine but upon entering the attic room we found my 6'2 partner could barely fit, it was like exiting a plane in the Caribbean... More

We are sorry to hear that you did not have a pleasant stay at the hotel. Unfortunately we do not have the luxury of air conditioning given the age of the hotel though efforts are made to keep the building cool. The weather conditions are beyond our control. There are obviously security measures put in place to keep the guests... More

We have recently attended our friends wedding at this hotel, and to say we were disappointed is a massive understatement. When we arrived to check in to our "well appointed room" we were greeted by a rather rude, stern woman who snarled at us "that the room is not ready, you will have to wait until 3". I understand it... More

We do not guarantee early check ins to the rooms, due to the time needed to service the rooms after use. The bridal and... More

Went to Maes Manor for a very special Sunday Lunch retirement meal with the family. The food was delicious - a wonderful choice for all three courses and very generous portions. We all had more than enough to eat. The price was very reasonable and the service was efficient. Thank you all.
